Support the EPA and Ramon in the fight against Climate Change!

latino_climate_infographicOn Juy 29th, our Latino Outreach Director, Ramon Palencia-Calvo is going to our nation's capital in DC to testify for the new rules to combat Climate Change.  President Obama and the EPA announced new rules to slash carbon pollution from existing power plants.

This is the biggest step forward we've ever seen to curb carbon pollution, the driving force behind climate change.

For Latinos and other minorities, the new standards will dramatically benefit the safety, well-being, and the health of our communities, protecting our children from the harmful effects of carbon pollution, which among other threats, triggers asthma attacks and permanently damages and reduces the function of their lungs.

Tell the EPA you've got their backs in the fight against climate change. Submit a public comment supporting their carbon pollution standards for power plants >>

2014 Environmental Scorecard Press Release


88% WIN


The environment was a clear winner this election cycle.

Nearly 90% of our 112 endorsed #MDVotesGreen2014 candidates have been elected in their primary election and they are one step closer to representing us in the Maryland General Assembly.

We set out to elect a pro-conservation Administration and Attorney General, build a pro-conservation majority in the Senate, and maintain a pro-conservation majority in the House of Delegates . With a large number of open seats and contested races, we made unprecedented investments in coordinated and independent campaigns this primary season to move voters to Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Ken Ulman, Brian Frosh, Jim Brochin and Brooke Lierman, among others.

Check out the full list of results here.

Our press release on post-elections results here.

Thank you for your support and now onto the General Election in November!
